Sergej Jensen

A collection of remarkable paintings created mostly without paint. Since the mid-1990s, Sergej Jensen (b. in Copenhagen in 1971) has been offering one of the most remarkable responses to the question of what painting can still be today. Painting in the classical sense plays only a minor role: in lieu of canvas, Jensen uses jute, coarse cotton, and jeans. He incorporates spots on fabrics, which turn the expressive gesture of his paintings into a sign of wear from real life. Jensen sews fabrics together, leaving the seams visible to evoke the fleeting impression of a drawing and he colors others with gouache, acrylics, and markers, but Jensen more often applies materials foreign to painting, such as patches, paper money, spices, beads, and glitter. Hanging his fabrics from windows, Jensen lets the sun and rain contribute a patina and treats them with chlorine and paints mixed with bleach to reduce their brilliance.

Neue Deutsche Malerei

One of the most important artistic movements in recent years is chronicled and showcased in this dynamic work.Born in Germany in the years following the collapse of the Communist regime, the New Leipzig School started when a group of classmates at the Leipzig Academy rediscovered figurative art. Their paintings reflected the melancholy that pervaded East Germany as it struggled with capitalism, high unemployment and depopulation. Fifteen year later, paintings by the Leipzig school and its related movement, Dresden Pop, are conquering the international art market. The authors take on this important trend one painter at a time. They examine each artist's oeuvre on its own merit and consider various factors behind the movements--the onset of the digital age, social disillusionment and individual protest. Breathtaking reproductions allow readers to form their own ideas about what constitutes and drives new German painting, and understand its significance around the world.

Sergej Jensen

White Cube Mason's Yard is pleased to announce 'The Last Twenty Minutes of 2001, an exhibition by the Berlin-based artist Sergej Jensen. The title of the show alludes to the visionary finale of Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' (1968), where the hero, Dave Bowman, travels through the psychedelic 'Star Gate' and 'beyond the infinite'. Jensen's new paintings invoke what the artist describes as 'floating around in a useless but essential space; an environment where 'beyond the infinite' - should you be looking for it - could equally be found in the dust on a kitchen floor'."

Fox Nahem

Over 30 years, Joe Nahem of Fox-Nahem has built a reputation for creating classic, contemporary, bespoke, and highly creative interior designs. The first book on his career, Fox-Nahem presents his most luxurious, exuberant, and refined interiors that showcase his own personal vision of modernism. Featuring 15 projects, the accompanying essays detail Nahem’s design process, specifically his ability to function as much as a curator as designer, bringing together strong objects of quality and rarity in harmonious ensembles. Nahem’s interiors are unique because he designs many of the finishes, textiles, and furnishings that establish the look and feel of a room. He calls on a stable of artisans and craftspeople, including woodworkers, metal workers, and weavers, who assist him in creating one-of-a-kind environments for clients who demand something that no one else has. With more than 250 photographs, Fox-Nahem celebrates the work of a designer who seamlessly adapts his style to suit the context and fit his clients’ highly refined and original tastes.

Made in Germany

"Made in Germany offers a comprehensive survey of contemporary art in Germany. At its core are fifty-two young artists living and working in Germany, about half of whom are from abroad and all of whom are among the promising newcomers of the international art scene. In looking at questions of artistic identity, Made in Germany no longer simply considers the birthplace and biography of the artists, but also the context of where the work itself is produced. This is the first time that modern German art has been clearly examined to this great an extent as a weave of national particularities and cultural exchange." "This volume provides concise insights into the complete oeuvres of all the artists, as well as an informative comparison of the individual artists and each of their different regional and biographical contexts."--BOOK JACKET.

All of this and Nothing

This book accompanies the latest bi-annual invitational exhibition organized by the Hammer Museum, which showcases the work of several Los Angeles-based artists, both established and emerging, as well as a number of artists from around the world. This catalogue to the 2011 exhibition highlights the work of fourteen contemporary artists across a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, performance art, moving image, and sound. Chosen for their interest in examining the nature of being and our experiential relationship to the world as well as their desire to make the process of artistic production visible to the viewer, this group of artists includes Karla Black, Charles Gaines, Evan Holloway, Sergej Jensen, Ian Kiaer, Jorge Macchi, Dianna Molzan, Fernando Ortega, Eileen Quinlan, Gedi Sibony, Paul Sietsema, Frances Stark, Mateo Tannatt, and Kerry Tribe. Their work explores the transient nature of materials, the limitations of structures and systems, and connections to music, sound, literature, mathematics, and time. This volume includes essays by the artist Charles Long and by Anne Ellegood and Douglas Fogle, the exhibition's curators, as well as a section of color plates and a brief text and biographical information for each artist, making this an exciting reflection on the nature of art-making today.
